If you have a pending legal matter that requires the services of a family law attorney, it is only logical to ask, “How much does a family lawyer cost?” We will attempt to answer that question for you, but please understand that initially we cannot always provide a precise dollar amount for our services.
It is also essential for would-be clients to know that the costs can and will vary from case to case, depending on contingencies such as the complexity of the case and the amount of time that it will take to arrive at a satisfactory settlement.
With these basic facts in mind, we want to point out that at Crosby & Crosby we operate on a retainer fee system for our legal services. What is a retainer, you may ask? Stated simply, a retainer is an initial amount of money that a client pays to the attorney who has agreed to represent them, and among other things, it is a way of establishing a bond of trust between client and attorney.
Through payment of the retainer, the client indicates they are serious about pursuing the legal matter in question, while ensuring the law firm will be paid for its services. For the attorney, acceptance of the retainer indicates that they will use the funds to pay their fees, as well as the legitimate expenses involved in pursuing the case at hand.
Another important thing to remember regarding a retainer is that it does not always cover all the costs involved in resolving a legal matter. Depending on the complexity of the case, the client may be asked to provide additional funds beyond the original amount of the retainer.
To make it possible for our clients to secure the services of our law firm, at Crosby & Crosby we are more than willing to establish a payment plan that will fit your budget while allowing us to pursue your case to a satisfactory conclusion.
